Great trip

We truly enjoyed the spacious room and bathroom the beds were very comfortable and the large well appointed bathroom was unmatched by other hotels we have used in the area. the access to the health club was great for us but a family with young children would not get much out of the lap pool arrangement. The service was good it is unfortunate that the hotel does not have a coffee/snack shop.

Best Hotel in Downtown Mpls.

I always choose the Grand in Minneapolis. It's well appointed, in a central location, and the service is wonderful.

Weekend Getaway

We had never been to MN before and just happened upon the booking. We loved the hotel, the people and the city. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better especially since it was 5 degrees when we were there! We could quickly walk above on the city walk or down to the bus/train station without freezing. The food and room service were great as well. We would definitely stay again!

Anniversary

Everything about this hotel is great, except the food. We ordered room service 2 mornings in a row and unable to finish either breakfast. Very rubbery eggs and burnt bagels. Hotel staff is great. We come here every year but will change it up next year. The resturaunt Rare has definitely gone down hill. Sushi was horrible this time. Would not recommend that restaurant anymore!

Weekend Getaway

Overall the room was very nice with a great view of the city. There were a few things that were very annoying during our stay, our room was a corner room that had windows on two sides of our room but the thermostat was in the hallway so it got extremely cold in our room because of the windows, I'm assuming why the thermostat was set to 72 F when we got to our room but still cold. Dispite the beautiful room, when you got in the shower, there was hardly enough water pressure to even rinse yourself off. The hotel wait staff was very friendly and the room was kept in perfect condition.
